A three-day benefit for the West Webster Fire Department continued Saturday night.

The event is being held at Pineapple Jacks in Gates.

It started Friday night, and has a variety of bands playing through the weekend.

Lou Gramm is expected to make an appearance Sunday.

The benefit features a 50-50 raffle and a guitar giveaway.

The last day of the event will be held on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.

"It's basically what we're here for - West Webster Fire Department all they give," said organizer Brock Thrasher. "Just seeing the amount of firemen out here tonight is just amazing. It brought tears to my eyes, to be honest with you."

Admission is $10 at the door, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the West Webster Fire Department.

Firefighters from the event say they want to give the money to those in need and to those whose homes burned down in the Christmas Eve tragedy.
